A spokesperson for the hospital confirmed the news, while son Jason Everly says his father died of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Phil and brother Don rose to fame in the late 1950s and early 1960s, with Rolling Stone labeling the siblings as "the most important vocal duo in rock."

They would go on to record 35 Top 100 singles, the most in history by a tandem.

The brothers were born to country and western singers Margaret and Ike Everly and grew up performing alongside their parents in live concerts and on the radio. They moved to Nashville in their teens in order to be songwriters.

Among the brothers' hits were "Bye Bye Love," "Cathy's Clown" and "All I Have to Do Is Dream," the latter of which was covered by The Beatles.

The Everly Brothers are members of the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame and were honored with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1997.

We send our condolences to Phil's friends, family members and loved ones.

Oh my gosh. I can't believe Grandpa died! I heard before this post, and I really am so upset. We didn't fight or anything. We had a really lovely conversation. I'll miss this joke he used to tell. Over and over again. It never got boring. We were always so proud of him. And, grateful to have him. Then one day he told us he had the disease and he said he is going to die. I remember how sad and shocked we were at the same time. But I was plain miserable. I always cared for him. I think more than my family ever did. I never even thought of his death because he was such a fun person. But then he laid this down on us. It's going to be difficult to cope with. My dad isn't having such a fun time. Neither is anyone. We all were so close to him and losing someone you knew so well was just not such a great feeling. We're really sad and depressed. I can imagine what Dad is feeling. I think I'm feeling the same kind of pain. My heart is broken. My tears are falling. My throat has one of those big gulps in it you get when you're about to cry. I swallow out the pain. I hurt. And it doesn't feel as good as the pain you get from that whore down the street wacking you with her heels.
